People want to tell their story, interpret their times, write and act with beauty and truth… before their peers, both on and off the stage. Itinerant Theatre (IT) wants to make that possible. IT’s mission is to produce and perform affordable, professional theatrical works for artistically underserved audiences.
IT builds on its Board members’ collective experience of presenting, producing, directing, acting and writing for the theatre and other performing arts, all on a shoestring budget.
IT looks forward to collaborating with other performing arts where possible.
For the 2019-20 season
IT proudly announces an October 18-19, 2019 event, “Louisiana Women: Life Inspired”. Carolyn Woosley will stage read two of her 13 Louisiana Women, “Caroline” (Dormon), the first woman in forestry in the USA and “Elizebeth”(Thomas Werlein) who led the effort to save New Orlean’s French Quarter from demolition. Woosley will preface each reading with short dramaturg’s notes on “the world of” each woman.
Please stay tuned for details on a December 2019 holiday season event.
For IT’s fifth New Play Series: The Play’s the Thing the theme is “Life Inspired”. Plays must be 10-minutes in length or short plays (under and hour) and have 1-6 characters.
